Vintage Morris Moskowitz Gold Leather Purse w/ Jeweled Ram’s Head Clasp
A jewel encrusted ram’s head set with colorful rhinestones, comprises the decorative clasp on this vintage gold saffian leather evening bag or purse by Morris Moskowitz, circa 1950s/60s.
The mid-century evening bag is boxy in shape and made of saffian leather with gold metallic surface and cross hatch texture. It features a hinged ram’s head clasp, pave set with clear faceted rhinestones, a ruby red glass cab on its head, and emerald green glass eyes.
It also has a single handle, a satin lined interior with open side pocket and smaller zipped pocket, and the designer’s signature of “MM” along with “Saffian Leather”.
*Note: There are two surface scratches in back, as shown (see last pic).
Otherwise, the purse remains in good condition, and measures approximately 5&1/4 inches across the bottom, and sits approximately 4&1/2 inches high (without the handle).
